I ask myself would I stay here again? answer is definitely Yes,
The location is spot on, like 100 yards from the Soi Mango the centre of Chaweng, just up from Ark bar which is now very overpriced, room was dated and old fashioned but clean, think we paid like £25 a night GBP for a basic room (with coffee facilities) and the place is smack on the beach, can not complain about that.
Pool area is really nice and modern BUT is already showing signs of degrading - green moss appearing on pool floor says to me it has never been cleaned, was not dirty by any means and i was in there every day just showing signs.Very nice Beds in between pool area and beach i will say :)
A Chang was 70 bht by the pool which i thought was good, lot of hotels charge 100 ish so was nice surprise.
Staff were friendly dont get me wrong, but the pool area was pretty empty only like 4 or 5 around pool , dont know why as its prime location but the staff just stand around the bar all day. I dont expect to be treated like im in a 5 star resort when im paying £25 a night but i swear there would be 10+ members of staff around the bar area but i had to go up myself and order just about every drink i had there. i just found it funny more than annoying - no idea who owns resort but if they saw how lazy they are i am sure they would not be impressed - but i do stress they were all very nice and polite.
We never eat at resort so can not comment on food
As previous reviewer stated looks like they going to do a full refit soon, lots of diss-used buildings and space being cleared.
If you on a budget stay here, its nice, clean and right on the beach - just be prepared to get your own Beer :)
